Princess Patricia of Connaught

Categories: Royalty

Daughter of Prince Arthur from whom she must have inherited some unveiling skills. Born at Buckingham Palace and named Patricia because it was St Patrick's Day. Brought up as a Princess, a member of the Royal Family but, 1919, married a commoner, Sir Alexander Ramsay (1881 – 1972) and thereafter was simply Lady Patricia Ramsay. A reasonably accomplished artist. Died Surrey.

The photo comes from a Christmas card dated 1936, but she doesn't look 50, does she? We think it may have been taken some years earlier.
